Embracing a Healthy Family: Harry Connick Jr Your Songs CD Review

Harry Connick Jr Your Songs CD Review

One2One Network gave me this incredible opportunity to review the new Harry Connick Jr CD titled Your Songs that was released today.  This album is unique in which Harry teamed up with outside producer, the legendary Clive Davis.  Harry took his big band, string orchestra and that one of a kind soothing voice to give a captivating, tantalizing feel to these songs:

  • All The Way (Frank Sinatra)
  • Just The Way You Are (Billy Joel)
  • Can’t Help Falling In Love With You (Elvis Presley)
  • And I Love Her (The Beatles)
  • (They Long To Be) Close To You (The Carpenters)
  • Besame Mucho
  • The Way You Look Tonight
  • First Time Ever I Saw Your Face (Roberta Flack)
  • Your Song (Elton John)
  • Some Enchanted Evening
  • And I Love You So (Don McLean)
  • Who Can I Turn To? (Tony Bennett)
  • Smile (Charlie Chaplin)
  • Mona Lisa (Nat King Cole)
All the songs are very familar which is nice and to hear Harry's smooth and soothing voice remake them, adds more appeal.

I think he did a fantastic job on each and every one.  Harry has such a great vocal talent that anything he would deliver in his usual way would be music to my ears.

As I was listening, I felt an urge to pour a glass a wine, shut my eyes and relax.
